E-Bulletin - April 29, 2019
We hope that you are having a good week! (Especially as the weather whips back and forth with no apparent steady point.)

With the recent bombings against Christians and Jewish worshipers in Sri Lanka and Poway, we are reminded that there is a deep pain in the world to which we are called to respond. We join in solidarity with the written
from our Archbishop, Cardinal Cupich about these matters. May we strive to live the words of the song, "Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me."
